“Ever wondered where lost things go?” – “A place called Here”
Often it is frustrating not finding things, especially when you really need them, but I always thought that I have just put them somewhere and forgot where because I didn’t pay too much attention. I also thought, still think and also experience prove to me so, that that thing is always in the last place you think about finding it and that also you will find it when you least expect it. That lost thing is somewhere near you, not really lost, just misplaced.
But the story I’m about to tell you about has another theory. It seems that there is a place where lost things go. Everything from clothes, memories, smells, sounds to people and everything else you could think of. This is a place where lost people make a new life by finding lost stuff. They have a different lifestyle as there is no money and no place for advanced technology. They don’t work for money as it has no value there. They only work for themselves and to help the community. Interesting lifestyle, right?
The lead character, who is Sandy Shortt, has a “passion” for finding things that she lost since she was a child so, as an adult, she specialized in finding people.To be more exact she runs a missing persons agency. As she was doing her job looking for someone, she found herself in the special place called Here where all the lost things go.
And I’m stopping here from talking about the subject because I don’t want to give too much away. If I made you curious give it a go and read the book.
It’s not the first book by Cecelia Ahern that I read and enjoy because it’s catchy and charming. The first one I read was “P.S. I love you“, which I think is better than the movie, but I don’t mean to say I haven’t enjoyed the movie. It was also lovely and Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler did a great job portraying Holly and Gerry. Second I read “Where rainbows end” which is also a love story but not as good as “P.S. I love you”. Then I think it was “If you could see me now” and “The gift” which I both loved and recommend to you.
Next I want to finish “Thanks for the memories” and then read whatever book written by Cecelia comes to hand because they put a smile on my face, stimulate my imagination and feed my hunger for easy to read love and life stories that are sprinkled with magic and hope which are always welcomed.
